This is the latest book in the Ali Reynolds mystery series.
This book flashes back to 2012, when Ali was a Los Angeles TV newscaster and interviewed a desperate mother trying to find a kidney for her dying son, Evan. Since the mom used artificial insemination from a fertility clinic, the odds of finding a match were low. To their surprise a viewer saw the broadcast and had a son that looked exactly like Evan. Then more and more half siblings were discovered and a medical nightmare emerged, revealing that the fertility doctor used his own sperm, instead of anonymous donors.
Years pass and the doctor ends up in prison. He wants revenge for the people he feels were responsible for his conviction. His prison connections and his mother’s money enable him to put out hits; and now Ali is the last person alive on his arm-tattooed Annihilation List.
J.A. Jance is one of my favorite authors. This book includes tidbits from the previous story lines, so it can be read as a stand-alone. I highly recommend reading this fast-paced, page turning series.
